I don't know if you attached a file with your email or not. If you

Since I'm into databases, I'm wondering if your data would be
better served creating a database to hold it. Not knowing how many sheet
your file contains nor what the columns are and what format each column
use. (I'm guessing that you use one sheet per year.) So, it would be
impossible to make any detailed comments.
From personal experience, a database would require less time to
maintain than your present speadsheet. With a little bit of work, all
your data could be entered into a database.
I have the same spreadsheet set I use each year.
The new spreadsheet for 2013 will need to reference fields in the 2012
The 2012 spreadsheet is referenced to 'file:///home/fred/Generation
For the past few years I have manually changed the Readings-2012 in every
instance (well over 100)
I would like to be able to construct the spreadsheets with a method to change
the current year, eg 2013 minus 1 to give 2012 inserted so that the ref in the
2013 spreadsheet reads;-
Is this possible?
Thanks for any help
Could we have more information, please?
